Borgo Architetti 建築家 として

The renovation intervention involved a 1000 sq. ft. apartment at the attic floor of a building. The high fragmentation of the spaces and the peculiar size of the flat reuqired a radical intervention that radically re - invented the daytime area. This was done by creating an ample living room, seamlessly connected to the outer area, that becomes the natural continuation of the latter.


To do so, we reduced the connecting spaces to the essential while underlining the paths with lighting systems.

The relation between living and sleeping areas is resolved through a wain scoated corridor.

Firstly, and external and cieling coating were put into place – with the consequent restoration of the original external brick coating – , the windows were replaced and insulatin g counterframes and shutter boxes were added. Secondly, after making the heating system independent from the building's, we created a radiant cieling heating and cooling system fueled by a heat pump which we integrated with solar panels for the producti on of hot water. Finally, a controlled mechanic ventilation system contributes the air renewal and quality, moreover collecting the otherwise dispersed hea
